Once you have already committed something very terrible, all of a sudden, anything less terrible than that becomes comparatively trivial. It’s quite striking to me to see Hermann Hesse seeing through humans’ such innate qualities. When you hate someone, the key actually lies within yourself. When you find a quality in someone annoying, it’s actually ourselves who have that quality and we are just denying it.

2011 Reprint of 1948 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. The main character of this classic novel, Emil Sinclair, is a young boy raised in a bourgeois home, amidst what is described as a Scheinwelt, a play on words that means "world of light" as well as "world of illusion". Emil's entire existence can be summarized as a struggle between two worlds: the show world of illusion (related to the Hindu concept of maya) and the real world, the world of spiritual truth. In the course of the novel, accompanied and prompted by his mysterious classmate 'Max Demian', he detaches from and revolts against the superficial ideals of the world of appearances and eventually awakens into a realization of self. The novel refers to the idea of Gnosticism, particularly the god Abraxas, showing the influence of Carl Jung's psychology. According to Hesse, the novel is a story of Jungian individuation, the process of opening up to one's unconsciousness.

Absolute loved this book. Yes I also purchased this as a result of the referencing in BTS's Wings album, (which I love to death) but this book is not just good simply because of that. It genuinely portrays the human experience of growing up so accurately, at least the human experience I've personally experienced, and it also talks about processing and acting upon what you feel in a way that's really opened up my mind. It made me relive moments of my life when I saw them happening in the life of the main character, Emil Sinclair. Demian himself feels like such a familiar presence, and his mothers character feels like someone I've always wanted to meet. I can really relate to the amount of overthinking about connectedness and metaphors for the problems that Emil faces, and how he expresses those things. Anyway, as a review I read said, you'll either love it or hate it I think. And it's really a modestly sized book, I almost wish there was more but I think it ended appropriately. I made myself only read a chapter a day so I could truly take in what was said, otherwise I might've read it in a day or two. In conclusion: one of the most memorable books I've read in ages.

I ordered this book a few months ago, because of BTS and I am so glad I did, because it is an amazing book. The book isn't too long, so even those who aren't big fans of reading are able to do so. However, there are some big words within the book that you may have to Google the definition of. The book is relatively cheap, so it's a good buy. The story line of this book keeps you wondering and keeps you wanting to read more.

The book takes place in Germany, around the first half of the 1900s. The story follows a boy named Sinclair who starts off as a smart, innocent little kid, and it basically follows him throughout his life. It includes him falling into temptation and falling away from tranquility and sameness. It begins as he is caught in a lie, that's where his life kind of flips upside down.

If you listen to BTS, you will notice a lot of little references within the book that correspond to the WINGS short films. This makes the book that much more interesting because you try to connect each chapter and its details with the little things that some may overlook in the WINGS videos. It's also easier to understand the fan theories if you read this book.

If you have never listened to BTS or don't know who that is, this is still a good book for you. It keeps you guessing. I'm usually the person who can figure out the ending of a book/movie before it ends; Not this book. This is one of those books that gets you thinking about yourself and about life. So I would 10/10 recommend you to read this book.

I got it because I'm BTS trash but omg it's kind of a slow read, it took me all day just to read one chapter, it is interesting though.
  • zzzachibis
This has become my new favorite book. It is one of the most relatable things I have ever read and had me saying "same" on every page. It perfectly captures the struggle of growing up and finding yourself. It is beautiful and inspiring.

For those wondering why so many of the reviews mention "BTS," it is because they are a group who released music videos/songs inspired by Demian, which influenced many of the fans to read the book. I'm so happy to have read it. It is such a wonderful journey.

Far from the spare prose of Siddartha, Hesse suffuses this novel with the lush, overripe, prose of late-Romanticism. It is a journal of self-discovery that speaks to the angst of growing up of a young man. As a schoolboy, Emil Sinclair is led astray by a school bully and becomes distant from his family. A slightly older youth, Max Demian, takes him under his wing and starts him on his journey of self-awareness. Demian is a mysterious character who proves to be an ongoing influence throughout Sinclair’s life. As a teen, he meets the organist Pistorious, a nonconformist, who reinforces the merits of individuality. As Sinclair confronts the duality of a masculine/feminine persona, he remains celibate throughout, though there is a strong strain of homoeroticism that surrounds him. Ultimately, under the influence of Demian and his mother, Sinclair understands the supremacy of the inner self. The novel ends with both young the start of WWI, “it will be a big war, a war on a gigantic scale. The new world has begun, and the new world will be terrible for those clinging to the old.”
